Leap Day 2016: Babies Born on Feb. 29 Are Being Dressed in Frog Outfits

A leap day birthday is something truly special — so to celebrate the babies born this Feb. 29, one Pittsburgh hospital is dressing newborns in adorably appropriate frog outfits. In honor of the special day, St. Clair Hospital Family Birth Center is giving every "Leapling" a little froggie bib and a knit cap, reports local CBS affiliate KDKA

These adorable birthday outfits should make up for a lifetime of only having a birthday once every four years. Welcome to the world, leap babies!

"There were two grandmothers who knitted a good number of the frog caps," Bob Crytzer, a spokesman for St. Clair Hospital, told Mic. They regularly knit special outfits for babies born around holidays, and, "with leap year coming up they decided they should do some frog caps."

A total of eleven babies will be celebrating their birthdays at St. Clair on February 29, Crytzer told Mic. And each one will get a special froggie outfit.
